Slow Cooker Fajitas Recipe

It has been quite a while since I have put Mexican food on the dinner menu. When I saw this Slow Cooker Fajitas Recipe it looked like it would be pretty good. Everything is cooked in the slow cooker so I knew whatever steak cut I used would turn out very tender. I don’t care for dishes that are two heavily spiced. This recipe was about right for me; a little nippy, but not too hot. If you liked your Mexican dishes on the hot side just increase the amount of cayenne pepper or use hot salsa as one of the condiments.

This was a very simple recipe with very little prep time. Once it’s in the oven you can set it and forget it for 7-8 hours. The next time you’re in the mood for a Mexican dish give this Slow Cooker Fajitas Recipe a try. Enjoy
